The super falcons of Nigeria are on the verge to face an early elimination after falling a narrow 1-0 defeat to France at the 2019 FIFA women’s World Cup on Monday.
The lone goal was scored from the penalty spot 10-minute to the end of the game by Wendy Renard.
The Nigerian women finish the group with three points on the third log, and they’ll be hoping to progress to the round of 16 by being among the four best losers in the competition at the end of the game in the other groups.

Even after qualification, they are likely to face either Germany or Italy a strong side in the round of 16.
The awarded penalty to France and the red cards to Ngozi Ebere in the 77th minute give the French side the lead after a barren first half.
